I have aloha on my mind. It’s been about 6 months since I have been on my good friend Maui. Or any of the islands. I love Hawaii, you know? If you’re like me, you dream about it… and look forward to it. I think about all of the things I’m going to do and eat! And what new wonders I will discover? Despite their small size, the Hawaiian islands are all magical in their own way. Yeah, magical.
I like to plan menu items using local fruits, but I never end up making everything that I intend to. This cake was one of them. I’m lucky I live in Los Angeles because I’m able to score some pretty amazing, locally grown tropical fruits. We have bomb guava and lilikoi/passion fruit season. Over lilikoi season, I got a ton and made a Vegan Lilikoi Chiffon Cake. You’re like, vegan chiffon cake?!?! I’m not sure it’s quite light enough, but it was as light as I could get it. 😉
